I know where the jack points are for jacking up the car but, where are the jack stand points under the car? Where is it on the front of the car? I see two bars under the transmission. One is welded-located behind oil pan. The other bar is bolted and located in front of the exhaust manifold. Both bars are horizontal. Do I put the jack stnads under one of these bars or somewhere else? Also, do I put the jack stand under the differential for the back? Any info would be appreciated.

Though your car is a W126 vs. my W116, there should be some similarities. For the front I would place the jackstands where that cross brace is welded to the car. If it's like mine, it's basicly a large tube that stretches across the car. For the back, I would use the point where the trailing A arm bolts up. Not the trailing A arm itself but, where it bolts to the floor pan. What ever you do, DO NOT places jackstands on the rear axle half shafts. You can't really place a jackstand on the rear differential itself without the car tipping one direction or the other. This would not be a good thing.
